Legends Hotel: Great Hotel in Puerto Princesa

We picked this hotel because after a very long journey to the island and arriving to heavy rain, we needed to stay somewhere nice! Joseph and Gladys in the tour office we were using said this was one of the best.

The entrance and lobby are particularly nice, you can tell straight away that this is a good hotel, and we were met by very efficient, friendly staff. This hotel has great facilities (pool, gym, business centre, gift shop, sauna, spa, laundry, room service, business centre...) not that we got to use them - our day trips kept us too busy.

The food in the restaurant is delicious, the breakfast buffet is included in the room price and is varied and plentiful, we had room service and had laundry done, both for reasonable prices. The room had 2 double beds and slept 4 adults very comfortably.

The location is central and plenty of tricycles stop outside for those rainy evenings when you don't want to walk!

The doors of the lift close very quickly - be warned or you might miss your floor or worse...

Bayview Lodging house - El Nido: for very low budgets

If you aren't too squeamish and on a very low budget then Bayview is the perfect place for you. The entrance is on Palmera street and the large balcony has a superb view on the bay!! The front rooms are also privileged with the same view. The rooms are large and pleasant and the beds are comfortable. Prices are 250 with shared bathroom and showers. The lady in charge is very nice , she can do your laundry and even cook for you. It's easy to have a quick swim just in front of the hotel. The location is perfect being a few steps to everything. The big balcony is very convenient for your breakfast and for a relaxing beer or a happy chat with other tenants in the evening before or after your outings.
I even arranged to have a relaxing massage in my room!

Mary's Beach Resort

Mary's Beach Resort is at the end of Sabang beach. Its simple huts with or without bathrooms offer a quiet almost private beach, pure jungle surroundings, shady trees with hammocks to dose off reading your book, excellent dishes cooked in a traditional way and balconies to enjoy the magnificent sunsets. Prices come between 350 for singles and 600-700 for two. Negotiate!
Your trip to the next stop by boat can be arranged with the friendly owner who, by the way, is an excellent cook! All the rooms have mosquito nets which are absolutely necessary...!
The distance to the center of the village is not annoying as it's a nice walk on the beautiful beach.
If you arrive by local transport someone will probably be waiting for you to carry your luggage to the resort even if you haven't booked, in case there are vacancies of course.

rover's: with a 'v', not a 'b'

since we were too late to catch the bus to el nido from sabang, we had to spend the night in roxas. no one else i know who has gone to palawan on vacation has stayed in roxas. and when we asked around as to where we should stay, the answer was "robber's". mildly frightening, yes?

it turned out to be rover's pension house. ah. the place was nice enough, in contrast to roxas city, which lonely planet described as "uninspiring." there's a little courtyard in the middle, and though the rooms are painted that terrible default pink-or-green, they were comfortable enough. there are several options, depending on your budget: from the bathroom-sharing kind, to having your own bathroom, cable tv, butler (ok, i was just kidding about the butler) -- but you get the idea. :)

the next-door canteen, tia ver's, offers turo-turo sort of fare. not exactly tasty, i'm afraid, but good enough to tide you over until the next meal.

robert's: nice cottages in sabang

for P450 a cottage, robert's is not a bad place at all! located right on sabang beach, linda (the caretaker) makes a pretty mean banana pancake. the cottages have a small veranda (excellent for taking in the view of the powder-fine, mocha-colored beachfront), as well as your own bathroom. no hot and cold water, naturally, and though the facilities aren't spanking brand new, they're clean and well-kept.

walk a few steps from your cottage, and you can dig your toes into the powdery sabang sand.

Legend Hotel-Palawan: Puerto Princesa

Legenda arranged everything for us then, including airline, full-board meals, accommodations, tours and other transfers. All by phone and thankfully hassle-free. When we got to Puerto Princesa the hotel was very accommodating, the food was great, the rooms clean and trip schedules are orderly.

Though it's still wonderful to try Puerto Princesa's cuisine thru their various restaurants and bars, it's welcome to be lazy here a The Legend. The hotel's restaurant menu offers a variety of fantastic and delicious dishes.

Hotel Fleuris: Nice Surprise from Puerto P

Our 4 Nite stay at Hotel Fleuris was a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Location is very good since it is just a 10 minute walk to the city center where some fast food chains and the local mall is located. The whole staff ( from the front office, resto staff and security guards ) was very friendly and accomodating. They even brought up to our room some salt in the middle of the night at our request. The whole place was very clean and with new furnishings. Rooms were quite big in size. Since there were 4 of us traveling together, they gave us an adjoing room which was an a big plus. The only drawback to hotel fleuris was that I had to shower in very cold water one morning because somehow, everyone in the hotel was using the hot water and it ran out. But overall, I give the hotel 2 big thumbs up!

Seadive Resort: Cheap Place to Stay in Coron

Everything is in the website, very cheap and clean place to stay in Coron town, they can arrange your boat rides and other activities like diving...

They have a nice veranda, please don't expect that this is right on the beach front, this is not like Boracay that has a long beach where you can walk in the sand, you need to rent a boat to go to beach areas here in Coron.

Audissie Pension: Audissie Pension

Auddissie Pension is a sad looking building at night. I can see this overlooking Tribu Cafe from Puerto Pension. It seems sad, although I think one reason is that we went on an off season and there weren't a lot of guests in their hotel.

A very convinient place to stay - if Puerto Pension is fully booked and you wish to stay in the central area, Audisie Pension is a good alternative.

3rd Floor aircon room: Sea Dive Inn: Coron's A-1 Accomodation

I can say that my brief 2 day & 1 night stay in this Busuanga Seadive resort is fantastic. It has has an experienced staff with local dive masters who are living on the site with the support of their state-of-the-art diving equipments. Wide fine dining options of "fresh caught" local seafoods, Chinese dimsums, American burgers and french fries, Indian curries, beer, smoothies, and healthy desserts. You can enjoy all of these while watching native boats coming into the harbor. You can also rest on its comfortable rooms with refreshing hot showers. The only bad point here is they don't include the tax on the charges as reflected on the display boards and the airconditioning in my room is not so cool. Also souvenirs are unattractive.

The most important & I can say the best feature of this Inn is the friendliness of its staff from the receptionist to the cook. Their warmth and special treatment extended makes you feel the need for you to stay longer and wish you wanna live here forever.

Puerto Pension: Recommendable pension house

I took a single room and was given the room at the ground floor but gotta share the bathroom with just another room which was occupied by a Swiss couple. Paid P745, got a queen sized bed, aircond,TV, 2 electrical sockets all in all, no complaints. . . except for the number of mosquitoes hanging around in the room. Tip - do not leave your room door open !! Tip - buy a cannister of repellant and Go anti mosquito cream. Room is clean but found the hot water a little not too hot. Told them also to fix the shower head.

The receptionist is a gem of a lady - was her name Bel ? Ya, I think so. The price comeswith breakfast, so when I ordered breakfast, the guy taking the order was a little blur and did not give me what I wanted,but that's no big deal. You are allotted a little table outside your room for your breakfast but I took the breakfast instantly into the room. Why ? Mosquitoes by the dozens !!!

Yes I will recommend this hotel. Nice setting and provides you the transfer to the airport as well. Probably just a little pricey, but then again, if Lonely Planet rates it good, they will not be short of customers. When I was there they were something like 95% filled with only 2 rooms left.

There are trixs and should you need a taxi, Bel will call one for you. Their computer system viz a vis their bookings system looked pretty efficient. There is someone at the computer almost all the time. You are just 5 minutes walk to the market and MacDonald and other pharmacies.

Puerto Pension: Puerto Pension

Family rooms were in the ground floor of the building (a 3 storey structured primarily made of native materials), so it was very convinient for my mum and my niece/nephew.

Rooms were very clean, although the there was always this problem of mosquitos during our stay. But they will give you an electric mosquito repellant inside the rooms anyway.

Restaurant (for the free breakfas) is located at the 3rd floor, a bit steep going up, but you can have a nice view of PP Bay.

We go their: Family Room
(Inclusive Continental Breakfast)

Php 1,190 (2 PAX) Php1,095.00 (1 PAX)
(Queen Bed with pull out trundle bed-Double Occupancy)
Php 350.00 - Extra person

Air-conditioned, with private toilet and bath
shower heater, colored cable TV. & mini ref.

Dos Palmas Resort: Honda Bay's Exclusive Resort

Cottage/ac/bath P9250 to P12,000 per person, including full board. Extensive, exclusive grounds with well-kept, tastefully decorated cottages, some of which are built on piles in the water. Restaurant, swimming pool, tennis courts, kayaks, diving.
Plenty of things to do in this resort. You can wander in their beautiful garden grounds til you reach the mangroves. Sports activities are also available. Kids will not get bored in their children's playroom with TV & videos. The resort can also arrange to take you to their snorkelling area thru their speed boat. The lunch buffet is very satisfactory. We paid P1200/pax for the day trip. It was such an enjoyable experience.

Nice snorkelling area. Huge beautiful garden grounds.
